7:31 am
in this case, the tier 1 operators are members of the unit credited for entering osama bin laden's compound last year. but the s.e.a.l.s did not ask the government before they talked and now seven of them have received letters of reprimand and will lose half of their way for two months. the deputy issued this statement -- >> reporter: apparently, all s.e.a.l.s sign a nondisclosure agreement and people we talked to this morning say if they knew the rules, they should have followed them. >> i think that when you join the military, essentially you are under the rules. it's in -- it's sort of an accepted form of savory. you go in there, they tell you
7:32 am
when you get up in the morning, what you will eat and how you are going to do it. if you want to play the game and play by the rules and they accepted the rules. i think maybe slightly an overreaction. i think these guys are slightly brave and heroic. but they have to apply -- play the rules like everyone else. >> reporter: there is also a book that a navy s.e.a.l. wrote that the pentagon has said violated that same nondisclosure agreement. they are still weighing their legal options about what to do about that. we should mention, however, there is a movie come out about the raid on osama bin laden's compound. the big difference, it's been done with the pentagon's blessing. claudine wong, ktvu channel 2 news. >> thank you. 7:32. renovations may have sparked a large house fire in san francisco. around 7:00 last night, flames shot out of the roof of the home on fernwood drive, not far

7:35 am
bay, birds present a problem and tree branches as well. the city says they are doing everything they can. but officials say when the island is turned otherrer to the city -- over to the city. a small citizens group has filed a request to turn over complaints back from 2009 and businesses and residents say they have backup generators onhand because they know the power goes out consistently. brian flores, ktvu channel 2 news. >> thank you, brian. coming up on 7:35. oakland police are looking for a man who they say tried to kidnap a 14-year-old girl. this is a sketch of the suspect. investigators say he tried to pull the girl into a waiting truck on 103rd avenue and international boulevard. this happened on monday. the girl was able to its cape and ran home. the truck is described as a newer model -- red pickup truck. 7:35. new jersey governor chris christie says power should be
